Due to size and weight of iPad Pro say 10.5 inches, its necessary that you should get a rugged case providing complete protection for the front screen as well as the back.
And the first choice would be to look for Original Apple Smart case sold on their own website!
But while you reach Apple’s website (Click here) to buy the Smart case .. you will be shocked to see the reactions by many people written bluntly on the smart case for iPad Pro? Why ? There must be something is really wrong?
What went wrong with the Original Smart Cover for iPad Pro by Apple?
- If you look at the original cover sold by Apple, no doubt that it matches to the stringent quality criteria by Apple (as always) then what’s the issue?
- Yes, it is Smart cover indeed, Opening it would auto-wake-up your iPad Pro and closing would get it to sleep mode. then what’s the issue?
- Yes, it has got the best snug fit ever. then what’s the issue?
- Yes, it has descent material, excellent magnetic attachment. then what’s the issue?
- First issue is the color selection, most of the colors provided by Apple are very light ones, I am sure they will look like anything within few days of use. Its common sense that any light color catches sweat & dust easily and start looking ugly.
- The second and main issue is “Missing Back Cover”
Yes the most important thing that is missing in the original Apple accessory is that there is no Back Cover !!
What is that Apple thinks to protect thousand dollar worth piece of cake?
Its sounds incredible that they have decided not to provide a full fledged solution of providing all in one smart case which protects the front screen as well as back of the iPad pro!!
- Who wants it as only screen protector and a stand ? At least its not me !!
So no way left buy you need to look for a third party case for your iPad Pro
Here is a solution I found for you:
Yes, a lightweight leather smart case Crafted from top layer of leather … its 100% genuine leather with natural texture and smell. Introduced by the age old company Jisoncase founded back in 2001. They have their own Classic Vintage Series of Pure Leather cases for iPhone and iPads.
Handcrafted Leather Cases from Jisoncase for iPad Pro
- What I liked in Jisoncase for iPad pro is the design simplicity with intuitive functionality (look at the leather part-cut-buttons on the side) providing an enhanced user experience
- Unlike Apple where only light colors are available for the cases, here Jisoncase provides dark leather color options, which are really suitable for rough and tough use, no worries of color getting ugly for months.
- Well since it is a Smart case, its Magnetic front cover wakes up your iPad or gets into Sleep mode automatically on flap operation.
- Front cover has got standard tri-fold design (like original Apple case) which can be used like the stand for viewing videos. Surely you can try different angle combination for better views.
- Another thing important in any case is the Precise cutouts for the headphone jack, USB port, camera lens and mute button, since they decide upon the connectivity to external devices. This case do provide laser sharp & accurate cutouts demonstrating experience in manufacturing.
- Compared to the previous review on iPhone 7 Plus leather case, where I had expressed slightly dissatisfaction on logo, here the Silver staineless steel logo gives rich look to the case. So no issues from my side on this aspect.
New and released by Jisoncase.
- Last but not the least is the commitment from the company, they offer “Unconditionally refund” or “Return for any quality issues”.
I think this is the most important aspect during selection of any product from my side.
